R50 I believe is the model designation for the Cooper

The clue is sort of in the forum names here, but for a better guide see here:

What are first generation, second generation, r53, r56 etc?

I try not to use the R numbers (really meant as internal codes), as I appreciate it can be confusing for those not "in the know", which I imagine to be a fair number of visitors!

Yep, R50 is pre facelift and R52 is post facelift cooper. There isn't an R53 cooper, just the S i believe.

Not quite. R50 is Cooper, One (& D), whether pre or post facelift. R52 is convertible, and R53 is S.

Unless the S happens to be a convertible, in which case it's still an R52!

Who ever said abbreviations make life easier!?
